Art Scholarships

Scholarships are a source of aid to pay for college. Scholarships can be based on need, academic or artistic merit, or both. Some are even based on factors such as ancestry, employment or home town.

The Chemeketa Foundation grants scholarships from $150-$1000 to students who are enrolled in art classes at Chemeketa. Two such scholarships are described below. Other art scholarships include The Clive Townley Scholarship, The Crouser Family Scholarship, and The McKay Angel Scholarship. Learn More...
